12 Frilly Days of Christmas 2015, Day 7: [Recipe] Maple Dijon Green Beans

green beans cover

Maple dijon green beans – a very simple recipe and a favourite in our house. Three happy diners sitting around the table, just four ingredients, and about five minutes.

I have been so excited about posting this recipe – it really is absolutely delicious, and just so simple. We default to using this recipe for our supper side dish all the time. We had them just a couple of nights ago and my husband asked me if I thought we could put the sauce on other vegetables too – that’s how much we like this recipe.

We often serve these green beans with salmon. The sauce does double duty – we have it on the beans, and spoon the rest of it over our salmon – it’s perfect with the fish as well. The butter allows the sauce to coat the beans nicely, and the dijon mellows out and doesn’t have that sharp dijon taste at all.

Please, please try this recipe. I just know you’ll love it.

PS – the pictures I took of this recipe just don’t do it justice. Trust me. Just eat these green beans.

A bonus! This recipe is easily made vegan by replacing the butter with coconut oil.
